I came here for my works Christmas party and it was brilliant. There were around 15 of us - large groups can be accommodated with some notice. The food was divine - I had the steak which was just melt-in-your-mouth delicious. The decor is lovely - it really enhances the dining experience and makes it that bit extra special -... More

We have been eating here since it opened 30 years ago and have never been anything but delighted. The menu is not vast but fabulous with specials in addition to a la carte. There are also early bird deals. The food is seasonal and beautifully cooked. A great select of wines with recommendations to suit your food. Went on Saturday... More

This restaurant is very local to us and we had heard good things about it and so we have tried it a couple of times but will not be bothering again. Last time I went I had the scallops which were around £10 and not good at all- 3 tiny overcooked scallops served with a blob of creme fraiche and... More

We attended a wedding at the weekend and shared a wonderful wedding reception at The Lime Tree. The meal was superb and the staff could not do enough for us. Many thanks to everyone at the Lime Tree.

We went here with some friends. It was my first visit and had great expectations. We arrived and were shown to our table and presented with the menu. Our food arrived later and we were. Keen to eat our Sunday lunch but unfortunately the food was just warm and not piping hot as I would have expected. Am so disappointed... More

Had our work Christmas lunch here this week - a group of 17 on two tables. I had three courses and each one was absolutely delicious. I had a prawn and smoked salmon starter which was well-presented and the flavours were lovely. Main course was pheasant which was a good size serving perfectly seasoned. I changed my mind for dessert... More

I have been an occasional visitor to The Lime Tree over the last 18 years. It is the sort of place to celebrate special occasions. However every time I go I end up wondering why it took so long to return! Although on the expensive side the service, food and presentation are always immaculate. The food is wonderfully seasoned, vegetables... More
